Ray Easley

My recent work is grounded in the exaggeration of the human form. Application, texture and layering of material are paramount to the growth of my work.  I am interested in the use of  multiple mediums to construct portraiture/ busts of ambiguous characters. The result of my studio process fluctuates images from shapeless to representational to gain significance between suggestive and indecipherable.

Ray Easley was raised in N.W. Arkansas, received his B.A. at the University of Houston, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2014 with a M.F.A. He currently works out of his studio in Fall River, WI.
